Advanced Education Forum 2017

The GSS has partnered with the Alliance of BC Students and other student societies from across British Columbia to host a forum on Advanced Education this spring. Together, we represent over 200,000 students at institutions like Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia, Kwantlen University, Capilano University, Langara College, and more.

Continued support for programs and infrastructure, affordable transit, and the climbing cost of living in the province are growing priorities for students. With an election on the horizon, we want to learn more about the three major parties’ plans to address them, and we are inviting all members of our community to attend this event.
